Last September we embarked on a two month journey in New York City. E would work in the mornings and sometimes had business meetings to attend, but for the most part we were there together enjoying all the big apple had to offer. This wasn’t our first time in New York City for either of us, especially E because he goes often for the wine business, but it was our first time staying for such a long period.
We booked a beautiful, modern apartment off of Airbnb.com in Nolita. Small, of course, like most places in NYC unless you are a billionaire, but the size of the apartment didn’t matter to us because we were out exploring the city each day. The area was perfect because it was North of Houston street – (fun fact; not pronounced like the city in Texas), East of SoHo, South of NoHo, West of the lower East side and North of Little Italy. The area was not over populated with tourists and far from Times Square, which was exactly what we wanted. We wanted to emerge ourselves into the true culture of Manhattan.
